Knot garden at Little Moreton Hall

Your visit will enable an understanding of the Moreton family, the period in which the hall was built and what life may have been like 500 hundred years ago. Working with the National Curriculum, education visits to the hall are designed to support the delivery of key stage 2 history, unit 8 with aspects of units 1 & 2.

Key skills

Pupils will practise key skills of observation, discussion, teamwork and analysis to explore the 16th century and develop an understanding of:

  • How a Tudor family would have lived in Little Moreton Hall in the 1560s
  • How their lives differed from the lives of children today
  • How the Moreton family compare to others in Tudor society
